think the appointment of jonathan sallow to held that task force is really -- >> who's also going to be the new general counsel at the fcc, the fellow that you just mentioned. >> guest: well, and i will tell you i just have great respect for phil revere who has led three bureaus at the fcc. he was the architect in the 1970s of some of the original sort of computer i and computer ii requirements that were aimed at introducing competition into the industry. i think that tom wheeler himself is one who has led industries that have been seeking to expand and to deploy and to invest. he has a very keen appreciation for those things that limit investment. and there's nothing that limits investment more than lack of certainty and predictability. so where there's a regulatory overhang that creates uncertainty and unpredictability, that limits investment. so i'm very, i'm very optimistic that we're going to see a commission that's going to focus on objectives and goals, investment, deployment and not focus so much on the traditional regulatory means that's been kind of the hallmark of the fcc.
